Product Description

The Google Nexus S is the first phone to run Gingerbread, the fastest version of Android yet. Gingerbread builds on some of the most popular Android features like multi-tasking and Wi-Fi hotspot and adds a refreshed user interface, an improved keyboard, near field communication (NFC) support, and more. A 1 GHz Hummingbird processor paired with 16GB of internal memory makes Nexus S one of the fastest phones on the market. Menus open faster, tabs are more responsive, and web pages load quicker with virtually no lag time. Switch between apps effortlessly with true multitasking on Android. Nexus S has a dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Playing mobile games, browsing the web, and watching videos are fast, fluid, and smooth. It's like having a pocket-sized multimedia and game console. Nexus S is manufactured by Samsung, and it is the first smartphone to launch with a Contour Display. The curved glass screen fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. A brighter screen with higher contrast means colors are incredibly vibrant, text is crisp at any size, and luminance is up to 1. 5x higher than conventional LCD displays. The rear-facing 5 megapixel camera is capable of taking stunning pictures and videos that you can share with friends and family. The front-facing camera can take VGA quality images and video. There's a slick black notification bar that's easier to read and an improved on-screen keyboard with multi-touch support that makes typing faster and more accurate. With Gingerbread, copying and pasting text is easier than ever. Use the new text selection tool to copy and paste when entering text or viewing a webpage.

Beware - If you are buying from Wire4Less (sams distributions llc) - you might end up getting a refurbished phone.
That is what I got, and that is what I am returning.
Amazon needs to discipline this "seller" as quickly as possible because I do not want any more customers being misled.

- Thank you.

It is quite difficult for the lay-person to figure out this "will it work on AT&T 3G" thing. As another reviewer stated, the phone as advertised will not work on AT&T 3G. However, the phone I purchased is actually sold through Wireless Experts. A day after the order was submitted, I received an email from Wireless Experts asking me to call them. I called and was informed asked if my intention was to use this phone with AT&T, to which my reply was, Yes. The person at Wireless Experts told me the difference between the phones--which basically Amazon lists, but if you don't know what to exactly look for, then you won't know the difference (as I didn't). So, Wireless Experts upgraded my order to a Nexus S that is compatible with AT&T's 3G network--and a white one at that!

About the phone, as the title of the review states, it is a great phone. The lack of a MicroSD card slot is really not as bad as what I thought it would be. The majority of files I would put on the phone would be music and pictures -- movies are reserved for my tablet. The phone is easily root-able as well as being easy to unlock the bootloader. If rooting your phone is your thing, and you happen to want to adjust processor speed, one thing I found out while using the SetCPU app (my use is for down-clocking the processor when the screen is off to help save battery) -- well, if you set a profile to down-clock the processor for screen off, DO NOT set the processor to its lowest setting in the profile settings. Doing so will cause your phone not to come back on when you attempt to turn the screen back on and you will have to remove and reinsert the battery to get the phone to come back on.

unit arrived in time coz i paid for 2 days shipping,comes with the ff.,no original box instead they use carrying case from HTC mytouch phone,a manual with 11 pages on it,not even mentioned if it is for nexus s.replacement charger although is samsung but you'll know it's not the original.no earphone.replacement battery with no name or brand on it.dies within 7 hrs of standby,probably it will last a couple of hour if you use it.phone has no scratch or whatever,don't know if it's new or not,because there is no plastic protector on it which you can find in any brand new phone.i paid for a new phone because the adds say so,but instead i got this.wire4less shame on you!

After reading the reviews on here I tried my luck and sure enough, I also received a remanufactured phone. It was not in the original packaging/boxes, not original battery, not original instruction booklet, and the sticker inside the battery compartment clearly says "Remanufactured." I'm not sure why Amazon is letting wire4less continue to deceive customers but needless to say, I am returning this item. Thanks for wasting my time, wire4less.

i thought i was buying a new phone. this is refurbished. my only complaint is lack of an original box (resale value) and lack of an OEM battery. it did ship with an HTC mytouch leather case, which is arguably an upgrade from the white cardboard nexus box. the phone is free of defects, but is clearly refurbished. i received the 9020t, which is the t-mobile version. its apparently a crapshoot as to which one you receive. seller was wire4less (sams distribution llc)

*edit* 10/28/12
oh and the phone is amazing by the way. I love the nexus line. I've been travelling in Eastern europe (used a turkish, greek, and georgian SIM with zero effort) and this phone works flawlessly everywhere, popping wifi hotspots is a particularly useful feature. i derive a bit of smug joy watching other tourists become confused when their SIM asks for an international unlock code (Verizon/AT&T phones are generally not international devices out of the box regardless of having "global" included in their marketing terminology).

as i near the end of my year warranty, my battery life has fallen to less than 2 hours of screen-on use, while this was extended marginally by the 4.1.2 update, its absolutely unacceptable.

This product is advertised as new and they are shipping a refurbished product with a third party battery (which can very well has the potential to harm the device) and missing headset. It says USA warranty, but being Refurbished it would be just 3 months compared to a year. I have sent mine back for refund and bought a new one (in real) from Negri Electronics for about $25 cheaper than this. I would have rated this 0 star if there was an option.

My friend purchased this phone for me from sams distributions llc at Amazon.com and he took it to me overseas. When I started using the phone I knew that there was something wrong with it. Battery died in about 4 hours after full charge. Even I leave it at night in airplane mode with 50% charge it dies in the morning. When I checked the battery compartment, I noticed that they changed the original battery with a cheap battery with no brand on it. Basically they sell the original batteries. I wonder what other parts of this phone they sent me are not original parts.

Amazon simply needs to ban this company from selling any other product for doing this, it is not acceptable to see this kind of fraud companies here, selling non-original phones as new phones!
